Embers (as named in game files) are a species of small flying insect seen thriving on Fuel Gel in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. They can be seen flying around in locations containing the volatile substance, most notably the Fiery Airdock. Gel Rays are stated in their Logbook entry to feed on these insects. Just like the moths, they will follow Samus if she is in Morph Ball mode, also if she deploys a bomb some of these bugs will be killed.
Gel Rays are nonaggressive bioforms native to Bryyo. They are one of the few creatures who make their home within the caustic pools of Fuel Gel. The unique exterior and shape of the Gel Ray allow it to withstand and glide through rivers of gel. Their main source of sustenance is small organisms that exist within Fuel Gel, but they are known to occasionally leap out to feed on insects that fly near the gel's surface.
